Transportation Funding Bill Pulled from Idaho House
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Legislature’s only transportation funding deficit proposal to make it to the House floor is being pulled back.
Instead, House leadership will present a revised funding version later this week.
Republican Rep. Greg Chaney of Caldwell tells The Associated Press on Tuesday the bill he co-wrote that would create nearly $70 million to $100 million in new transportation revenue will not get a vote on the House floor.
Chaney’s proposal had already cleared a House panel and was to be debated by the full House Tuesday morning.
A previous proposal backed by legislative leaders failed to get enough votes to survive a House panel.
Idaho lawmakers are nearing the final weeks of the legislative session. This means time is limited to pass a comprehensive transportation funding plan.
